... ears of China’s elite. As why would China eternally follow the 'rules', which are made by and for the hegemon, particularly if China becomes the world’s biggest economy? As Yergin (2011) stresses oil has been a primary energy concern for China ever since Mao, as it was perceived as a main component of a modern economy, in turn, fuelling military and political muscle.

Oil and Gas Markets to 2025 - LUKoil

... conventional gas production will actually fall steadily, which may raise worries if the unconventional gas is actually overvalued. Also, even Russia, traditionally a pipeline supplier will enter the game with about a 1/10th share by 2025. No section about energy is complete without China, which is why LUKoil highlights that the Asian dragon has the most favourable conditions to establish shale production and it has already begun to import relevant technologies. However, the lack of gas infrastructure and limited water resources ...

... distribution of economic capabilities in the near future will be vital as unless asymmetry is lessened, this relationship may not get very far, as asymmetry breeds conflict.

In this first post of two-part special, a Europe-Russia focused question and answer session is outlined with Dr. Tatiana Mitrova, whereas in the subsequent second post, coming later, we look at China-Russia. Europe-Russia ‘Special Deal Severed’: In normal day-to-day life Europe has a stable and diversified supply structure. It is currently doing enough to diversify its supplies so it does not undermine its energy security, but for a region which will dependent on imports for 80% (some sources even indicate 88-90%) of its energy needs by 2025-2030, it will naturally be more susceptible to risks. Any setbacks, or sudden events, ala Fukushima or Arab Spring ...
